Tonight I had the pleasure of meeting the absolutely fabulous, funny, beautiful, wise and warm (and terribly fit) Patti from the Patti-O, here in her hometown of San Antonio.
She surprised me with this way cool gift bag filled with Fiesta goodies -- and yes, those are tiny umbrellas for "umbrelly drinks". Fiesta is a major celebration that takes place here in April -- all I ever knew about it was that I can never find a soul in the office that week, but should I find myself in town this year, I will be well supplied. I have my own margarita glass with sombrero base, shot glass, suspended by beads so I can wear it around my neck, beads with chili peppers, tiny umbrellas and the eggs -- arghhh, now I can't remember what they are called -- dyed and filled with confetti so that you can smash them over people's heads! What a welcome!
We went out to dinner and we talked and we laughed and we maybe almost cried a couple of times. It was a great night. We had to talk the wait staff into taking our picture together on the way out and here we are:
I had Scott's new camera and as an accidental bonus, the girl taking this picture also shot this fine film:
Someone recently said the cool thing about the blogosphere is that it helps us find our people.
So glad I found Patti!
